Similar to calligraphy in style, yet different in materials, lettering only requires basic washable markers, sharpies, or your favorite pen. We will begin by exploring the basic strokes of lettering. From there we will examine different styles to diversify our artwork. Once we feel comfortable with some of the basics, we will begin lettering words and longer quotes. Ultimately, you will create a card or small poster that you feel proud of, and that represents you well. The best set up for this experience would be to use your device and put it so that you have both hands free. Lettering requires working on any hard surface like a table, clipboard, desk, etc. " WHAT TO BRING A note that buying materials is not required; you can use whatever writing utensils you have access to :) Kindred suggests the following: - Lettering Pens (The Tombow brand or any sort of brush pen/marker) - Washable Crayola Markers - Sharpies - Sharpened Pencils with Erasers - Ruler - Blank White Paper SCHEDULE Please arrive promptly at 2 pm Central Time and stay on the Zoom channel until 3 pm.
